[movies]360 Degrees of GLAST - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
GLAST will carry two instruments: the Large Area Telescope (LAT) and the GLAST Burst Monitor (GBM). The LAT is GLAST's primary instrument and consists of four components: the Tracker, the Calorimeter, the Anticoincidence Detector (ACD), and the Data Acquisition System (DAQ). These instrument components working together will detect gamma rays by using Einstein's famous equation (E=mc(squared) in a technique known as pair production...

[movies]GLAST's LAT Instrument - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
The Large Area Telescope (LAT) detects gamma rays by using Einstein's famous equation (E=mc(squared)) in a technique known as pair production. When a gamma ray, which is pure energy, slams into a layer of tungsten in one of the Tracker's towers, it can create a pair of subatomic particles (an electron and its antimatter counterpart, a positron). The direction of the incoming gamma ray is determined by projecting the direction of these particles back to their source using several layers of high-p...

[movies]GLAST Launch and Deployment - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
GLAST's launch is scheduled for early 2008 from Cape Canaveral Air Station on Florida's eastern coast. GLAST will be carried on a Delta II Heavy launch vehicle, with 9 solid rocket boosters. The solids are actually from the Delta III series (hence the term 'heavy'), mounted on a Delta II. It has a 10-foot fairing and two stages. Stowed in the launch vehicle, the spacecraft is 9.2 feet (2.8 meters) high by 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) in diameter...

[movies]Gamma Rays in Pulsars - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
This animation takes us into a spinning pulsar, with its strong magnetic field rotating along with it. Clouds of charged particles move along the field lines and their gamma-rays are beamed like a lighthouse beacon by the magnetic fields. As our line of sight moves into the beam, we see the pulsations once every rotation of the neutron star. Note: This animation shows gamma-rays from a pulsar Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI)...

[movies]Gamma Rays in Active Galactic Nuclei - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
This animation shows how gamma rays possibly form in Active Galactic Nuclei. Note: AGN animation Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Producer: Deanna Kekesi (NASA/GSFC). Scientist: Julie McEnery (NASA/GSFC), Steven Ritz (NASA/GSFC). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: Fermi/LAT.

[movies]GLAST's New Window on the Universe - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
The Universe is home to numerous extoic and beautiful phenomena, some of which can generate inconceiveable amounts of energy. GLAST (Gamma-ray Large Area Telescope) will open this high-energy world as the first imaging gamma-ray observatory to survey the entire sky every day and with high sensitivity. Astronomers will gain a superior tool to study how black holes, notorious for pulling matter in, can accelerate jets of gas outward at fantastic speeds...

[movies]The GLAST Spacecraft in Orbit - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
GLAST will be launched into a circular orbit around the Earth at an altitude of about 560 km (350 miles). At that altitude, the observatory will circle Earth every 90 minutes. In sky-survey mode, GLAST will be able to view the entire sky in just two orbits, or about 3 hours. Because gamma rays in the GLAST's energy band are unable to penetrate the Earth's atmostphere, it is essential that GLAST perform its observations from space...

[movies]Gamma Ray Creation - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Gamma rays are the highest-energy forms of light in the electromagnetic spectrum and they can have over a billion times the energy of the type of light visible to the human eye. Gamma rays can be created in several different ways: a high-energy particle can collide with another particle, a particle can collide and annihilate with its anti-particle, an element can undergo radioactive decay, or a charged particle can be accelerated...
